Lower the cost of your Spring Cleaning by using baking soda! A box of baking soda is inexpensive, can be used to clean many things, and does not have a strong smell (like other cleaners do). Here are some things you can clean – or deodorize – with baking soda.
One way to remove mildew from your bathroom is to use a damp sponge and some baking soda. It will take some effort, but it is possible to scrub away mildew from your tub, tiles, sink, shower, and shower curtain with baking soda. You may want to have multiple sponges on hand, depending on how much mildew is in your bathroom.
Got a greasy or grimy microwave? Baking soda can make it cleaner! Sprinkle some baking soda on the inside, and outside, of your microwave. Wipe away all the dried food residue and whatever smells are lingering with a damp sponge or microfiber cloth. For best results, unplug the microwave before cleaning. Don’t forget to wipe off the handle and outside of the microwave!
Baking soda can be used to remove orders. This is why people put a slightly open box of baking soda in their refrigerators. Baking soda can also be used to remove musty smells from closets. Put an open box of baking soda on a closet shelf and leave it there. You can also fill an old sock with baking soda and put it in a drawer to remove odor.
When the weather starts to warm up and get nice again, you might want to bring your lawn furniture out of storage. Baking soda can help you clean it up before use. Mix a half-cup of baking soda with 1 quart of warm water. Get a sponge or a cloth, dip it into the mixture, and wipe down your lawn furniture. When the dirt is gone, rinse off the lawn furniture and let it dry.
